There’s an uncanny satisfaction in playing a zombie game as you violently make your way through loads of mindless, yet scary, zombies. There is always a horrific element in the zombie games, but the satisfaction of popping zombie heads with a shotgun makes us brave the horrors and move on. There is also a survival aspect to such games, where you gather resources which are in nature.
Best Zombie Games Ever
All in all, its the same horror, the same scarcity and unpredictability that draws us to these zombie games. Here are the best 5 zombie games.
Dead Rising 4
Dead Rising 4 is a rather unconventional zombie game. While most such games present an emotional story, Dead Rising 4 features a badass protagonist Frank West who loves to kill hordes of zombies with an arsenal of over-the-top weapons.
It is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows.
Running over zombies has never been so much fun in the open-world Dying Light which is sprawled all over with hoards of zombies. There is blood, gore, a wide open world in which you can drive around in a car, parkour and brutal weapons. What more can you ask out of a zombie game?
It is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, Linux and Macintosh operating systems
State of Decay 2
State of Decay 2 lets you kill zombies in a vast open world with your friends in multiplayer. The zombie game focuses on survival elements and promotes you to scavenge the map for resources. It looks gorgeous in 4k on the Xbox One X.
It is available on Xbox One and Microsoft Windows.
Left 4 dead 2
Left 4 dead 2 is the ultimate co-op zombie survival games which you can play, as the name itself suggests, with 4 of your friends. On the base of it, you and your team have to make your way from point A to B. But in between those points stand hordes of mad zombies which you must outlive. There’s also an array of original weapons.
It is available on Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows and even Xbox One via backward compatibility.
The Walking Dead
Telltale’s The Walking Dead is a zombie game that is totally different from all the others mentioned on the list. It does not provide a satisfying feel for killing zombies or a beautiful world. In fact, most of the game is point-and-click based. But its story is so deep and mindblowing, and the fact that your decisions decide how the game turns out makes it one of the best zombie games ever.
It is available on PC, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, iOS, Android
Bonus: Days Gone
Days Gone is an open world zombie game that is yet to be released. But its gameplay and trailers are so good. Tons and tons of zombies chase you at once and you must use the environment, accompanied by your weapons, to fight the zombies. There’s also a beautiful open world that you explore by riding a bike.
It is a PS4 exclusive.
Resident Evil 2
Resident Evil 2 is the original big daddy of horror games. It manages to scare the life out of you even with the outdated graphics. An HD remake of Resident Evil 2 was announced at E3 2018 and only the brave can survive it.
It is available on PlayStation, GameCube, Nintendo 64, IBM PC compatible, Dreamcast, Microsoft Windows, Game.com. The HD remake will be available on PS4.
No More Room in Hell
No more room in hell is another game that is bound to give you nightmares. It is the ultimate ruthless and unforgiving zombie survival game which also features a co-op mode.
